“I enjoyed joining the Year 8 girls bible study group one lunchtime. We discussed the importance of pressing on as a Christian, from Philippians 3. The girls really started to focus and listen when a question came up about how we should respond when those around us are against Christianity or Jesus. This is obviously something they live with day by day, and it was a privilege to have a moment to point them to the Bible passage we’d read (Phil 3:18-19) and help them see that we should grieve for those who live as enemies of the cross, rather than feel intimidated by them.” (Steph Adams)
Friday saw the end of our time at St Andrew’s Cathedral School. We finished our debrief this afternoon full of thankfulness for all the ministry, learning and encouragement that has gone on this week! We were especially privileged to hear some great talks from Andy, Tim, Braydon and Becki in chapels and cru groups. Year 12 chapel was a special highlight. We only had 16 minutes to run the session, and students began the time aloof, but by the end of Tim’s talk on the “centurion’s big mistake” in the crucifixion passage, you could have heard a pin drop. Pray that God would be at work in these students so they would make the most of their final year of Christian education and come to clear convictions about the gospel.
- Thanks for chapel services and cru groups during the week, where the gospel was clearly and winsomely presented by all who shared
- Thanks for the ongoing privilege of being able to minister the gospel in many schools
- Pray for Craig Tubman and the chaplaincy team at SACS as they seek to engage the student and staff bodies with the good news of Jesus week in, week out. We were encouraged by their enthusiasm and thoughtfulness this week.
